I want to take up one of these sports but I'm not sure which one yet. I like both, I wanted to know which are the benefits of being a badminton or a tennis player. Are they a good workout? Do they burn fat? Build muscle? etc... Thank you :)
1RMs are : squat 68kg, bench 43kg, deadlift 100kg, military press 30kg

I've just worked my way through Ben Aaronovitch's Rivers Of London and Moon Over Soho. Fantastic books both, good story line, well written and extremely entertaining! I'm on Let The Right One In by John Ajvide Lindqvist - a complete change. Very dark.

Depends what the challenges says ! :-) Actually there are many plank challenges on the site that encourage you to increase your time holding. Start with a manageable time and gradually increase it over time. You will soon get the hang of what is achievab...

Hello everyone... I have two labardor retriever brothers (and only two in the litter). Hank (black) and Cooper (yellow) are my morning walk buddies - they are six and a half and are just starting to settle down from puppydome... well sort of... but they...

I am a runner & used to be a long distance swimmer. I find that after a good solid run (15km plus) that I have literally no appetite. After running a 3:28:24 marathon and burning well over 3000 calories it was hours before I was able to eat. I go for a 3k...
I too get extra hungry after aqua sports compared to excercise out of the water. If I go for a run will take me a while to want food after but can aqua jog and need to eat straight away afterwards! Maybe just working harder in the water or is it a mind thin...

Recently i've been hooked on body weight squats. From the beginners stance to the Sumo Squat. Unfortunately i'm now experiencing some pain in my knee joints. Anyone else get this? Does this mean I need to take a break from squats.., cos I really don't want...
Funnily enough for me it is doing the squats themselves. Higher rep squats help my creaking, stiff old knees.

Does anyone have a Garmin 110? if so can you tell me if I am able to swim with it? I keep getting conflicting info on the viability of this and obviously do not want to launch into a swim with it and find I have ruined it lol

How many of you carefully consider the symmetry of your physique? If so, which particular parts (if any) have you had to work on to maintain perfect balance. How did you go about it?
Some really interesting points here. I personally try to maintain "proportion" but don't think too much about smaller detail symmetry - my bodyfat is not low enough to notice any real difference at present. I think you are perfectly right Russell G about t...

Some people get lost in their music when they run; I prefer to think while I run. What runs through mind?
nothing! it is the only time i can get away from everyone & everything. when i start getting fatigued i start counting remind mind myself to keep abs tight and keep my form. it has gotten to the point where even though i have my tunes on i cant hear them.....

I have just purchased some as part of my "new kit" and wondered if anyone has any tips?
What do you do and why? Have you tried front squats? I find them much more difficult, but damn do they hit those abs!! I really recommend them for athletes, it really improved my core strength and explosive speed massively. My box jump is quite frea...
I do a mix of front squats and back squats as I find that they both work me out in different ways. The front squat is Moore challenging but I feel the burn more, though I am not able to do this with as heavy a load as I can do the back squat I currentl...

I don't know why but I can't do handstands! I can do them in a pool but not on land! Any advice?
start by practicing the Crow Pose. This builds up your strength and stability. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eXLWMHANqlw ...

We are hoping to thru-hike the AT in 2018, when our kids are all big enough to carry their own packs. That gives us enough time to take care of a few things and gather the necessary gear. For now, though, we are hiking sections in the Great Smoky Mountains...

Hi all, I'm new to the site but being doing Zumba for about a year, tomorrow I'm going to a Zumba bootcamp. Just wondering, can you log Zumba in your exercise bit?
